It was recently brought to our attention that entries to the guestbook were not making it through. After a long investigation it was found that this was due to the over aggressive application of anti-spamming preventative measures. A 11,866 page long error log was examined in detail and the 15 genuine entries that had been caught in there have now been extracted and added to the guestbook to bring that fully up to date. Notes of apologies have been sent to each of the contributors together with an offer to help the one person who had experienced some difficulties navigating the site.
If you notice something not working as you would expect it to, then please feel free to email the webmaster
and let us know.
